The world is not what it used to be. You will see many examples of how people hurt themselves, their spouses, children and everyone else around them. As time goes, people become less concerned with such happenings, till it fades into the background. The result is a people who are comfortable with a shocking amount of violence in our environment. It is time we did something about it.
Even children now find this normal. They have also grown to find violence normal. When a neighbor is suffering; nobody will bother to get concerned. When we see other children suffering in the news, we could not care less since ours are safe.
Every time we ignore what is presented to us in shocking detail, we kill that humane side of our lives that is supposed to guide us to do better. There never misses an account of how people are being trafficked into slavery, yet we are not moved by this. When it comes to the issue of animal cruelty, we are found already ignorant of suffering to care much about it. You will thus see so many instances of such reports, but so little output from all that effort. You will hear of so many incidents of animal testing, where the experiments leave them dead in the most horrific manner. The meat industry is also a culprit in such acts.
People are also actively getting violent against animals in their neighborhoods. Those with pets will find it hard to think of such things being done to theirs. It is, however, the reality of so many animals out there.
The suffering of these animals highlights the extent of the damage ignorance of the facts at hand has reached. The strong are leaning on the weak at an alarming rate daily. This would explain why someone would find it normal to injure a harmless and peaceful pet. Pets are simply not able to survive without their owners. They are the least interested in hurting these people. They thus deserve better treatment from these people.
It is important for everyone to rise up and do something about this. There are many animals that demand some form of help. The least people can do is to acknowledge that there is a problem. It should be a big deal when some of us are abducted and nothing is done about it. We also need to be vigilant when it comes to incidences of animal cruelty. We need to join in the efforts of organizations such as the Humane Society of the United States. It is out there campaigning for the protection of the rights of these animals. Help support the work of the HSUS, and together, we can stop this cruelty.
